Spy shots show interior of the next-generation i30 too. A fleet of Hyundai and Kia prototypes have been spied cold weather testing together.

These spy shots of the 2012 Hyundai i30 were taken with a group of Hyundai and Kia prototypes caught testing in the colds of northern Europe.

These pics even offer us a look at the interior of the next-generation i30, which also has camouflage but that material and stitching on the seats already gives away a very European design. And we also get a decent look at those new LED taillights which are newly positioned on this generation's design.

The i30 will share a platform with the Kia Ceed which we also recently spotted testing on the same expedition. Engines expected in the next i30, a C-segment competitor, will be a 1.6 liter gasoline/petrol with around 122 PS (90 kW / 121 hp) and 155 Nm (114 lb-ft) of torque, as well as Hyundai's 1.7 liter diesel producing 115 PS (84 kW / 113 bhp) and 255 Nm (188 lb-ft) of torque.

If Hyundai wants to take on the middle and upper range Golf variants it may want to throw in the 1.6 liter Gamma GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) turbo with 140 PS (103 kW / 138 hp) and 133 lb-ft (167 Nm) of torque for the i30 as well as the saucier 177 PS (131 kW / 175 hp) version of that engine slated for the Veloster model.
